Hanging with my Gnomies

This lockdown is no good for my bank balance, I can't stop buying new stash 😄 

These are Janet Klein's 'Gnomes' from Aall & Create.

After stamping them onto watercolour paper I coloured them in with Distress Markers and cut them out.

I googled 'gnome puns' to find a sentiment to go with them and plumped for this one as I thought it would be suitable to send to my cousin's 19 year old son for his birthday. I stamped it out with my Aall & Create tiny alphabet stamps.  

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-

Lost Coast Designs #114 gnomes 

AAA  #181 Up to one third

Happy Little Stampers (CAS) Short and/or tall

CASology #382 Unite 

Creatalicious Challenges #203 Anything Goes with optional kraft card

As You Like It Challenge Favourite 2 colours (aqua and brown - I love the colours of nature, these two represent the sea and the earth)

Thanks for stopping by, stay safe
